Bracko was going to lock and delete the thread? Don't the mods only operate within their own jurisdiction/forums?

1. Bracko is a supermod
2. I did the locking because RWS was right
3. Diarx done good

Other news, getting my PS3 ready to ship. I found a box that looked like it would suit, foam inserts and all. Only later did I realise it was a George Foreman Grill box, and made the connection. I hope the new owner sharts.

No issues with the thread being locked, just thought it was a bit odd that a mod for the Lifestyle forum would venture in here and dish out his authoriteh.

I'd like to do away with the "like" box and have user titles dished out by mods.

I miss setting avatars/titles and then putting users in groups that didn't have access to change them.

otoh as the most-liked user I believe I speak with authority when I say likes are pretty dumb and there's certainly a good case for removing them

like this post if you agree~

No it's was a "make ITM spend millions on storage by forcing them to store hundreds of thousands of integers (user ids) registering likes on posts" thread.

Unfortunately the mods stopped us before we could go through with our cunning plan.

Vertex 2 seems like a decent buy atm, cheap too.

Not really, intel and other brands perform the same and sometimes better then OCZ

Price is often the deciding factor I think.

Yea, if you're looking at new gen, the Intels are on par with the newer OCZ. However if you're looking at a gen back like Vertex 2, OCZ has had a better reputation than the others.

oh man, that stupid thread has thrown the natural order out of balance; only a few days ago I noticed it was funny I'm by far the most liked poster in GCP&G but didn't have any of the top 5 most liked posts

this brave new world order still works for me though

On the very first day of the task, one of the blokes with a platform ladder dragged it right into a sprinkler, which burst causing an absolute fuckload of water to spray out. The sprinkler also happened to be right next to the penetration where the allymak had been removed so water flowed down into the next story as well. Down in the basement the fire pumps had booted up and the alarms were screaming. Pretty bloody funny. I think a couple of fire engines rocked up as well.

Corsair, Intel and Crucial are the only brands worth buying.

Pretty much all the others are a craps shoot in terms of quality. Seen so many go for RMA within a month or two of purchase.
